Hey Mike,

Congrats on the forum, I think it is one of the better trading forums I have come across, and I've seen my fair share. As to what I measure in terms of performance, besides the items you have, I also include the following in an excel file i've designed myself over the years:

  • Profit per day, month, quarter and annually, with the ability to provide filtered results instantly;
  • # of Trades
  • Trade Class/Type based on my trading system (eg, may have 'A' class trend continuation, 'B' class breakout, 'C' Reversal, etc...
  • # winners/losers per Class/Type
  • Trade Batting Average (winners to losers as above)
  • Average winning/losing trade amount ($ & R multiple)
  • Largest winning/losing trades
  • Average consecutive winners/losers
  • Largest consecutive winners/loser
  • Average winning/losing trade time
  • Average winning/losing trade - time of orders
  • Winning/losing periods (eg opening bell vs morning vs lunch vs afternoon vs close)
  • Winners to losers per Instrument
  • Average winner/loser per instrument
  • Average time in trade per instrument
  • Equity Curve per instrument and portfolio (see how my own trend is going )
  • Equity Curve vs Weekly Review Score (my own system for rating myself on trades, including completion of non-trading items each day) Essentially finding my profits go up when i complete all my tasks...
  • Average winner per trade rating (rating given based on performance criteria in each trade, detailing observation and monitoring of market, trade setup recognition, entry and execution, trade monitoring, trade exit, post trade analysis, etc...)
  • Profit/Loss Average per day of week (eg - do i trade well on Friday vs Monday)
  • Profit/Loss Average per session per day

There's a few other things i measure, but i won't go into detail as it probably isn't relevant to anyone except my strange self....

Hope this helps in some way...

The Hermit...

Can you share your excel sheet plz
